Celebrate Ramadan Safely July 26th, 2012 admin Latest News Shares Comments It is important that the Muslim community enjoy Ramadan but remain safe during the month. By following a few simple steps they can greatly reduce the risk of fire within their home. • Never leave cooking unattended and take care when deep frying food. • Never fill the pan more than one third full of oil. If the oil starts to smoke turn off the heat and leave the pan to cool. • NEVER THROW WATER OVER THE PAN. • When cooking take care with loose clothing. • Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service advise people not to use chip pans and use deep fat fryers which are much safer. • Take extra care when cooking before sunrise when you may be tired. • Most importantly, make sure you have a working smoke alarm on each level of your home and test it each week by touching the test button. • Without a working smoke alarm you are six times more likely to die in an accidental house fire in the home. • Working Smoke alarms save lives • Keep your home, family and community safe from fire For further information please contact Bilingual Safety Advocates on 0151 296 6270.
